does not translate to live-action and what else its film adaptation did wrong.

Thanks a lot for this review, I absolutely DESPISE this movie both as a fan of the show since I was a kid and as a film critic in general.
This is so bad that I consider the live-action films to be a What If? Story where the floating timeline didn't exist

I am only comparing the poor decision that nick have done the same as cartoon network.

I hate it that is the worst idea that nick has ever put it out the same as having Fred both film's and a t.v. series he is not funny, cool, and he is annoying as is another show the Annoying Orange on cartoon network. Why does hollywood think theese two are good on the internet could be good on t.v. Why theese two I mention are entertaing. This sight is good.

This was a great slam man. And I had no, NO idea or even words about the 2nd Spongebob Squarepants movie. I mean, WHAT?!? Anyways, I've never seen the movie you've slammed on, and frankly I am kinda glad I didn't.

If they were going to adapt a Butch Hartman cartoon into a live action movie, why couldn't of been Danny Phantom? It could have been great as a live action movie!

Funny. Even not having been a fan of the show, I can't understand where they were coming from with this movie. I heard of it once, I never watched it, never cared.

Just because he mentioned the fact that Tara Strong is the voice of Twilight Sparkle? And when he did, he was just saying what a diverse actress she is.

Still haven't seen it, but REALLY struggling to now after seeing this vid. And from experience as a fan of the show, it also doesn't help that despite the creator writing the plot for this, is that Scott Fellows (long time writer for the show and creator of Johnny Test) was involved with it, and giving his track record as for late....ayup.
But what's actually annoying too is that some fans consider this canon to the show despite that it just doesn't look and feel the same as the show itself, its like making the live action flintstone movies canon with the cartoon, they're too separate.

Yeah, the movie was stupid. I found it enjoyable stupid though.
Out of curiosity, what is your opinion of Poof?

Yeah, this movie looks like a piece of crap, and the villain is a huge cliche. Give the Muppets some credit, they had the excuse that they were parodying the cliche.

To be fair, I think when The Muppets used the "tired cliche" it was meant to be a parody. But, I will agree about everything else in this movie. It's not just the actors, but the whole movie is obnoxiously mugging for the camera. It's Son of The Mask all over again. Also, everytime Crocker yells his catchphrase in the movie it looks like a poorly choreographed music video.

The Last Airbender is Lord of the Rings compared to A Fairly Odd Movie Grow Up Timmy Turner!

Mr. Coat. Nice slam! I too did not care for this movie. My Sister and I love the show. We used to watch it all the time when we were younger. I love the characters, the Looney Tunes-esque humor, the pop culture references, etc. I'm glad you like the show too. And I'm wondering, what do you think of Spongebob Squarepants? I happen to also love that show. But what do you think of it? Do you love it? Like it? Hate it? Don't worry about hurting my feelings. Just give me your honest opinion. And congratulations on 201 episodes! Keep up the great work!

as a fan of the show, and a big one at that, but this movie is just well... ^:27 is the example. but i can excuse a few things in this movie, but two things i can't are drake bell as Timmy and the ending. everything about the show that was great is though out the window and eaten alive by the jumping shark. it's just awful.
and wait! they're making another spongebob movie?!

Well, great I need to know about this because I am an animated person. So,let's make money by making a live-action KND, or make a movie about you fighting Zilla (GINO/american Godzilla). Radioactive King-Kong is funnier than this...It's like making a movie about me, it just doesn't work at all.

The worst part was definitely Crocker's spasm attacks. That just looks horrible in live-action and should never have even been attempted. And Jorgan's actor was way too over the top. I think he's usually one of the funniest characters on the show, but in this he sounded like he was hyperventilating almost every time he spoke.
Are they seriously working on a Christmas sequel to this?! How stupid can these people get?

I gave up on FOP after Channel Chasers
anyway, There's no chance they will be creative with antagonists in family films since uber left-leaning Hollywood has thing where they portray big business is evil to our children
